To Enter Data in a Table
The next step is to enter data in the cells of the empty table. The data you enter in a cell wordwraps just as
text wordwraps between the margins of a document. To place data in a cell, you click the cell and then type.
To advance rightward from one cell to the next, press the TAB key. When you are at the rightmost cell in a
row, press the TAB key to move to the fi rst cell in the next row; do not press the ENTER key. The ENTER key is used
to begin a new paragraph within a cell. One way to add new rows to a table is to press the TAB key when the insertion
point is positioned in the bottom-right corner cell of the table. The next steps enter data in the table, adding rows
as necessary.
